Toronto Police no longer keep track of how many cyclists get hit by car doors because they only deem something a collision when the car is moving.  (Silly).  Anyway, Justin Bull has taken it upon himself to create an open source site to document these frequent accidents.  The site should go live August 21.  (http://www.doored.ca)

When my sister was here we spent one afternoon drinking coffee and eating Vegetarian Antipasti at John’s Italian Caffe on Baldwin.  I sort of forgot all about that little street for a bit.  Although it was a little too hot to do so on the day we were there, I really like sitting on their patio out front.  A good place to do some people watching!

That same day we wandered over to Nathan Phillips Square and looked at Ai Weiwei’s art installation Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads.  You can see photos of me and Ana posing with our Chinese zodiac animals above.  I am especially looking forward to his exhibition at the AGO which opens August 17th.

Have you seen the trailer for The Fifth Estate? It’s a film made by Dreamworks about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.  I cringed as soon as I saw that this was coming out.  It may be interesting but I am going to assume it takes a pretty pro ‘merica stand point and that the script also took liberties with the “truth”.  I am also surprised that this film has already been made considering that the Julian Assange story, as far as I can tell anyway, is far from over.  Side note, I wonder if the CBC cares that the film used one of their network’s TV show titles?
